COME and TRAIN AIKIDO
"Tsunawatari" – the art of rope dancing.
One paradox of Aikido is that it`s essence carries both martial heritage and peaceful ideals that can often appear as opposites.
The purpose of the practice is to reconcile these opposites.
Aikido practice is like walking forward on this tight rope between the martial origins and the ultimate ambition of mercy towards the attacker.
